We get the stamp of approval from the Wirral Charity Post

Volunteers at last year's Wirral Charity PostRadio Clatterbridge has received the stamp of approval from the Wirral Charity Post.

The organisation, which helps deliver thousands of Christmas cards every year, has made a donation to the station as part of its annual benefaction to local good causes.

The service, which has just marked its 35th anniversary, sees Scouts and Guides sorting and deliver cards across Wirral.

Last year, more than £120,000 was raised and Radio Clatterbridge was one of 18 local charities to receive a donation from the proceeds together with the Scout and Guide groups which took part.

"We try to donate as much as we can to all Wirral and local charities... It's being put back into your community." - Emily Sault, Wirral Charity Post

46 Scout groups, five Guide disticts and three Ranger units work together to sell the special stamps and deliver cards in time for the big day.

The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity also benefitted this time around.

"We owe you a lot. We've got to say great thanks from Radio Clatterbridge for the support you have given us over the years." - Steve Evans, Chairman

To learn more, you can listen again to an interview we recorded last year with volunteer Emily Sault.

Our thanks to Wirral Scouts & Guides Christmas Charity Post for funding this project.
